If you are already impressed, calm down, only the prototype has been revealed so far. 

The revelation took place during a research presentation at the Designing Interactive Systems (DIS) Conference 2019 in San Diego.


Apart from the presentation, a test was conducted on the participants, who were asked to wear the prototypes for a duration of 8 to 16 hours.

People were subjected to conversations, jokes and other activities to invoke in-the-moment emotional responses. 

The feeling of happiness, sadness, grief, anger and even fear were used to activate the device.

Explaining the prototype, co-author Muhammad Umair from Lancaster University in Britain told News18:

Knowing our emotions and how we can control them are complex skills that many people find it difficult to master. We wanted to create low-cost, simple prototypes to support understanding and engagement with real-time changes in arousal. 

Later, he concluded by saying: 

One of the most striking findings was that the devices helped participants started to identify emotional responses which they had been unable to beforehand, even after only two days.
